Event Description

Ubuntu Help-Portrait shoot for orphans and children at various orphanages in Swaziland.

This is our maiden effort as part of the Exchange initiative.

A small group of Swazi photographers is willing to start a Help-Portrait group in Swaziland and our visit will be the start of sharing with them how we do it and encouraging them to kick-start a local group there.

Portraits will be taken in a number of local orphanages and homes for children.

@Stanley Uploaded my HB_ and Colette's CT_ photos. Don't think I have Colette's in the correct folders as it looked like two shoots to me but she has been to three venues. Maybe wrong folders but they are all there.

@Lauge: Kewl, they have been moved.

Comment by Lauge Sorensen on November 29, 2011 at 2:30pm

That's correct - all 40 are from St Pauls

@Lauge: To confirm all the pics [40 portraits] in the St Joseph's folder were taken at St Paul's?
